Couldn't do it haha. Can't risk this desk
What do you mean?

The triple monitor bow goes onto either the wall-mount or desk clamp mount arm as an attachment.

So you could have 3 of the LG monitors on the bow, they're only like 6 pounds each.

I don't trust it as irrational as that is. But 3 of those LGs would be nice as fuck

We have the same desk setup, except your countertop is more durable than mine, and mine could handle it. You're good as long as you have a leg under where it would be mounted in order to prevent eventual sagging

Got an Alienware aw3420dw in April.

Join the Ultra wide master race, it is worth it.
Cant imagine going from ultrawide back to anything else - I have the PG35VQ and tempted to actually sell it off and go to the 38 inch LG

The only thing stopping me from getting the 38 inch LG is I have no idea how I'd mount it properly or get a GPU that could push that many pixels in games.

But it seems like a fantastic monitor.

I've gotta say, having owned both, G-Sync Compatible is definitely not G-Sync.

G-Sync Compatible I have to cap my frames at -3 from the refresh rate to fully prevent screen tearing because it can't stay perfectly in sync when bouncing around the refresh rate cap, where with G-Sync it just works no matter what.

You're supposed to cap at -3 regardless of what type of async it is to minimize input lag. The reason for the cap is to avoid vsync kicking in while having it enabled because it has other benefits. Losing 3 fps to gain lower input lag is a no-brainer trade-off.

This isn't monitor-related but maybe someone can help me out. I need a good gaming keyboard with backlit keys since I'm playing EQ in dim light lately. Not going to spend too much on one, though. Just need something basic. I'm looking at these five. Going to order one tomorrow night. If anyone has a suggestion for something else or experience with one of these let me know.





And the current frontrunner:

At that price point everything is going to be pretty much the same quality wise. If you wanted to spend a bit more for a decent mechanical keyboard, I bought one of these to use at work. Quite pleasant to type on, no software necessary to mes with the lighting. It is a clicky keyboard though, so skip it if noise bothers you.

Clicking does bother me a little bit. I wish there were a spec on Amazon telling you the "level of clickiness" on all of these keyboards.

I'd kinda like one with a programmable auto-hotkey function for EQ farming purposes, but I have AutoKeyboard either way.

For that you pretty much have to find out what switches they use and then look up the details on them.

Getting a bag of o-rings and putting them on can help quite a bit
They help with the noise of bottoming out the keys, but the keyboard I linked clicks at the point of actuation as well. That and the keycaps aren't on simple posts so you can't put o-rings on them.

Cool display, interesting to find out 1000r is also the curvature of your eye.
